Tips & FAQs

How to get the most out of Boxing Day sales

To make the most out of the Boxing Day sales, you’ll need a plan of attack. Here are our tips:

  1. Make a list. Sales days can be both tempting, and overwhelming. To make sure you don’t spend more than you plan, and come away with what you meant to buy, draw up a list of your most needed (and wanted) items. Prioritise to give yourself a clearer idea of what’s most important.
  2. Do your research. Start at the top of the list and find out where each item is being sold. Consider price, location, and any product specifics that might vary from brand to brand. Make your way down the list and research each item carefully.
  3. Set yourself a budget. Spending more than you intend to is an all too familiar after effect of Boxing Day sales. Set yourself a budget for the day, and for each item. Give priority to the most necessary purchases and then move onto the most wanted. If you do your research and save on each item, you can reward yourself by spending the leftover budget on the fun things.
  4. Stay calm. Don’t feel obliged to spend money on stuff you don’t need. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, don’t stress. Remember, there’s always next year.

Shopping online

If you can’t make it to the stores, don’t despair! Shopping online during the end-of-year sales period is often more advantageous for shoppers. Why? One reason is that online stores often start discounting items well before Boxing Day. You could even save big on Christmas presents if you do your research. Of course, another big plus for online shopping during sales time is missing the crowds, and having the luxury of shopping in the comfort of your own home.
